The University of Indianapolis invited young musicians of all talents and ages to participate in multiple exciting camps this summer. Led by UIndy faculty and students, these camps offered young musicians the opportunity to expand their musical horizons, meet new friends, and just have fun!
The Music for All Abilities day camp brought together seventeen young musicians to experience a variety of musical activities. Campers not only played instruments like drums and keyboard, but also learned more about singing and dancing. The young musicians were taught by UIndy Music Therapy students and Music Education and Music Therapy faculty. At the end of the day, campers showcased their musical abilities for their parents and friends.
The 29th Annual Summer Piano Camp at UIndy featured 20 young students from across Central Indiana. From composing their own music to learning the foundations of music theory, these students explored the wide world of piano with UIndy Music faculty, students, and alumni. The camp culminated in a recital which featured solo selections presented by each student as well as a quartet performed in front of family and friends.
“Both our Music for All Abilities and our Summer Piano Camp were great successes,” said Dr. Rebecca Sorley, Chair of the Department of Music at UIndy. “It’s incredible to see how talented these young musicians are and to help them grow over the course of the program. We are all already looking forward to next year!”
